Alaskan Halibut Lasagna Recipe

I use tender, mild halibut that we catch in Cook's Inlet near our home for this delectable white lasagna. Even "meat and potatoes lovers" compliment its great taste. You can substitute cod or chicken for the halibut if you like. -Evelyn Gebhardt, Kasilof, Alaska

Wonderful!! I used halibut the first time and next used a white fish. Was great tasting both times. Even Grandkids liked it.

This Alaskan loved it! Modifications: I use a little less halibut and add 8 oz. imitation crab. The recipe is unclear about the noodles, since half a 16 oz. package is 9 noodles. To adjust for this and make sure there's enough sauce to go around, I use an 11x7 baking dish and use three layers of three noodles each, leaving some sauce and extra cheese to cover the top noodle layer. I've used both Swiss and a half-mozzarella, half-Parmesan mixture--both were good.

Outstanding! Better than anything I have tasted in a fine seafood restaurant. I made as directed except I used no bake lasagna noodles and 4 cups of mozerella cheese instead of the 2 cups of swiss. Next time I make it, I think I will use half mozerella and half shredded parmesan cheese. I recommend doubling the recipe for the sauce as it was not enough to finish the layering. I had to make another batch before I could place it in the oven. There were plenty of leftovers to enjoy the next day. This would also make a great potluck dish. Thanks for the recipe.
